The school assembly and enrichment program company has announced that their "Think Green: A Healthy Planet Show" will be available to Ohio schools for the first time starting this October.

“Think Green: A Healthy Planet Show” is a hands on and entertaining presentation that teaches kid-friendly environmental messages through the use of humor, magic tricks, and colorful props that students get to interact with. From reminders like “turn off the water while brushing your teeth” to learning about what happens when paper is recycled, everything in the “Think Green: A Healthy Planet Show” is designed to show kids that everyone can make a difference to help save the planet and help make their school a little "greener".

In recent years, many schools in Ohio have adopted “green” practices that include recycling programs, and the use of more environmentally friendly supplies and materials in the classroom. Some schools are taking the imitative one step further by becoming a LEED Certified Green School or earning other environmental and green school certifications.

“Think Green: A Healthy Planet Show” has been entertaining students in schools across the United States since 2008, but this school year will be the first time this environmental school assembly program will be available to all Ohio schools.
